I've been using the PhillyFunForKids app to plan our days through the break. It's really a great app.

It is a mystery why there is no Android App for the Patch. I use an App called "Ten Mile News" that pulls in all the local Patch feed, as well as feed from other local papers.

Baldwin.ph is a great website for the train. It is real time and you can see if the trains are running late before you get to the station. Nice in the cold weather.
